Report
Using MS PowerPoint as an IWB
IWB tools, techniques and
applications
This Presentation is based on
Making the most of your interactive whiteboard, European Schoolnet,
September 2010, as part of The EuSCRIBE Project
N.B. The emphasis in this presentation is on using PowerPoint in Non-Slideshow
Mode i.e. using the blank slides as a static IWB ‘canvas’

not when you have to lift the Pen from the writing surface
Tablet PC Mode: Pens Ribbon
3
2. Drag and drop / matching

…and you could also use Word Art
Also consider use of Character Map or, when in a Text Box, Insert …Symbol
…and use of Spellchecker
Choice of Colours …to Highlight or to disguise
(David Kearney “to Contrast or to Camouflage”) - the latter is used to create a Cloze Test.
Formatting etc.

5. Screen-shade, blind, curtain or revealer tool
Not available as a ‘Tool’ within PowerPoint but we can use a Shape instead
7
6. Text / handwriting recognition
Not available …you can use the ‘Ink Tools’ Ribbon but there is no special tool to
‘recognise’ within PowerPoint.
Not available but, if running a Tablet PC or an IWB-enabled computer, you may be able to
show on the Taskbar the ‘Tablet PC Input Panel’ toolbar. If so, Insert a Text Box …write into
the Input Panel …if recognised, click Insert
hello

7. Stacking objects / cloning and duplicating
Select an Object, then use the Home Ribbon (or Right-Click Menu) to ‘Bring Forward’ etc.
Select an Object, then use the Home Ribbon to Duplicate or Right-Click Menu to Copy
then Paste

8. Timers / stopwatches and clocks
…not available but use an online equivalent such as
http://www.classtools.net/education-games-php/timer
Note that (unless you run the Slideshow) you will have to Paste the above url into a Browser
…or download a Timer (to run alongside PowerPoint) from sites such as
http://www.online-stopwatch.com/download-stopwatch/
10
9. Subject tools
…not available (ain the form of “Galleries” as found in many IWB packages) but
use
• Insert …Clip Art (and then Search) – or
• Insert …Shapes – or
• Insert …Charts (for Maths or for Surveys in Language Class etc.) - or
• Insert …SmartArt (for Organisational Templates, around which you could
create your own data – or
• Insert …Tables – or
• Insert …Equation

10. Screen or page recorder / video camera
…not available within PowerPoint but use an external application such as..
Camstudio (open source) from http://camstudio.org/
Jing (there is a free version) from http://www.techsmith.com/jing.html
Screencast-o-matic (online free application) at http://www.screencast-o-matic.com/
The above is an Inserted …Embedded Flash – but you have to Run the Slideshow
on this slide (Shift+F5, then Esc) to play the video
12
11. Grouping
Draw a selection box around two (or more) objects …right-click and choose Group …Group
13
12. Transparency
With a single-colour Cover, right-click on the Object and ‘Format Shape’. Under the
Fill section, one can adjust the Transparency.
With a ‘Photo Cover’ it is only possible to make one colour transparent (and with
much effort!)
14
13. Layering …not available in PowerPoint
While objects can be re-ordered (‘Forward’ etc.) all of this happens on one
Layer. Some IWB applications (such as Starboard) operate on two or more
Layers (as well as re-ordering within those Layers)
15
14. [Erase] and reveal
In Tablet PC ‘Ink Tools’ Mode, you can choose a Thick/White Pen and paint over some
text. Then choose the Eraser to reveal the hidden text
Quelle heure est-il? Choisissez la bonne réponse!
Il est neuf heures et quart. Il est neuf heures vingt. Il est neuf heures
moins vingt. Il est quatorze heures et quart. Il est quatre heures et
quart. Il est quatre heures moins le quart.
16
15. Fill tools and techniques
Solid/Geometric Shapes are automatically filled. You can right-click on any of these
drawn shapes and, from Format Shape, choose a different Fill option.
Text cannot be Filled (as in some IWB applications).
A very important Fill is in terms of the Background, particularly for students with
Dyslexia. Right-click on the Background and choose Format Background. From the
drop-down palette, , I have chosen Yellow, with a Transparency set to 75%. An
option is to then apply this to all slides.
Quelle heure est-il? Choisissez la bonne réponse!
Il est neuf heures et quart. Il est neuf heures vingt. Il est neuf heures
moins vingt. Il est quatorze heures et quart. Il est quatre heures et
quart. Il est quatre heures moins le quart.
17
16. Screen capture / clipping / camera
From Insert, choose ‘Screencapture’. You can click on the ‘thumbnails’ that appear
or, underneath those, you can choose ‘Screen Clipping’ …when PowerPoint
minimises, you can draw a selection box around a chosen area.

17. Animation
Select an Object. Then from the Animations Ribbon, choose ‘Add Animation’. I have opted
for ‘Motion Paths’ …’Custom Path’ and then drawn a path to show a Matching.
Run the Slideshow on the particular slide (Shift+F5, then Esc) in order to view the
Animation
19
18. Interactive authoring
…’Flash Activities’ are not available from a ‘Gallery’ but we could use Hyperlinks to
recognise correct/incorrect answers. We have to Run the slideshow on this Slide
(Shift+F5, then Esc) to see the effect.

19. Dual user
This feature (AFAIK) is not available in PowerPoint. The idea is that, with some
IWBs, two or more users can operate at the Board at the same time.
21
20. User communities
Independent Sites such as
The Education Channel on slideshare.net
http://www.slideshare.net/category/education
‘Pete’s Power Point Station’ at http://www.pppst.com/
TSL Education at http://www.tes.co.uk/teaching-resource/100-s-of-free-powerpointpresentations-on-all-subjects-3001364/
Microsoft does provide lots of Backgrounds and Templates but this is not a ‘user
community’ in the same manner as that provided by some of the IWB platforms
22
21. Other interactive devices in conjunction with the IWB
It is possible to record audio directly in PowerPoint.
Choose Insert …Audio …Record from Audio
It is not possible to insert Video directly from a Camera or from a Visualiser
A number of third-party solutions exist to integrate Voting (“Student Response
Systems” aka “Clickers”) within a PowerPoint Show:
Turning Point
http://www.turningtechnologies.com/audienceresponseproducts/pollingsoftware/tur
ningpoint/microsoftpowerpointfeatures/
Qwizdom http://www.qwizdom.co.uk/software.php
Wireless Keyboards/Mice and Wireless Slates/Tablets may be used to allow
students to input content into the PowerPoint slide
23
22. Inserting Audio and Video
Insert …Video …Video From File (and Browse)
Insert …Audio …Audio From File (and Browse)
Insert …Audio …Clip Art Audio (and Browse)
Note that you do not have to be in Slideshow Mode in order to play the above media
24
23. Hyperlinking
Examples have been used in earlier slide.
Type (or Copy & Paste) a URL into a textbox …press Space (or Enter) and the address
takes on the formatting of a web hyperlink. However, the link is not active until one
runs the slideshow on the current slide (Shift+F5, then Esc)
You can also select any object (usually text) and then Insert …Hyperlink …Browse – in
order to launch a website or any file on your computer (this file is not, however,
embedded in the PowerPoint)
Similarly, having selected an object, you can …Insert …Action
www.scoilnet.ie
file

24. Locking
When in Slideshow Mode, objects do not have to be locked: clicking upon them
(or any part of the surface) advances the Show.
However, in non-Slideshow/StaticIWB Mode, it would be useful (though not
available) to Lock the object in order to prevent accidental dragging.
26
25. Page Sequencing
In View …Normal – it is possible to Drag & Drop slides to alternative locations in
the slide sequence.
Further, in View …Slide Sorter – you can also change the Percentage view: this is
very useful if you want to do a Sequencing Activity with your students
